Free Graphics and a Poem

But God
by Annie Johnson Flint

 I know not, but God knows;
Oh, blessed rest from fear!
All my unfolding days
To Him are plain and clear.
Each anxious, puzzled "Why?"
From doubt or dread that grows,
Finds answer in this thought;
I know not, but He knows.

I cannot, but God can;
Oh, balm for all my care!
The burden that I drop
His hand will lift and bear,
Though eagle pinions tire --
I walk where once I ran --
This is my strength, to know
I cannot, but He can.

I see not, but God sees;
Oh, all-sufficient light!
My dark and hidden way
To Him is always bright.
My strained and peering eyes
May close in restful ease,
And I in peace may sleep;
I see not, but He sees.

I hope you enjoy the Catherine Klein fall graphics, acorns and chestnuts, as well as the poem by Annie Johnson Flint.   You can read more about Annie **here** on this blog. 

Have a blessed week.

Hi Abby! What cute graphics today! And I love the faith expressed in the poem you have too. We all go through hard stuff, and have to hold on tight to the Lord.

I read somewhere that 'God knows the ending in the beginning." That really gives me peace.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I love this poem and it goes along with my Bible study this week. I will share it with my small group. Thanks for posting.
